Radicchio is the kind of Italian BYOB that exists on pretty much every corner in the city. But instead of paint on the walls, it has rows of wine corks that will make you wonder how much they had to drink to acquire all of the raw materials. The menu is full of solid pasta dishes like spaghetti positano and gnocchi al pomodoro. Also, it’s less expensive than other similar BYOBs, which makes Radicchio the perfect place for a last-minute date night on a Tuesday during an otherwise busy week.
